  17. 20. understanding our “smart number” wasn’t smart enough re-think of organizational strategy company open space to come up with a better plan first step towards breaking down silos Getting Visible Led to:
  18. 23. “ Q4 is a fast growing software company. Over the last 12 months we have seen a significant spike in sales and bringing on new customers. With this increase in sales also came a number of production problems in getting those clients live. It was not clear if we had problems in our process or not enough people. By visualizing all of the data related to sales and implementations we have been able to identify the problem areas more quickly and change our organization strategy and product direction.” - Q4’s CEO, Darrell Heaps
